    • The key numbers for me in this decision are: Mancini - 30 Mountcastle - 25 Definitely trade Mancini and keep Mountcastle.
    • If memory serves me correctly, David Lebron was the first player acquired via trade in the Mike Elias era. In exchange for international bonus slot money I believe. It was seen as a puzzling move considering the new regime was making an outspoken effort to get involved internationally.  Perhaps the money was next to useless with no infrastructure in place, IDK. 
    • In the big scheme of the baseball universe, we’re really not paying that much at all.
    • Chase Shores- 6’8” 240 high school RHP. Sits 93-94 touches 98. Still a work in progress with delivery and secondary offerings but I trust this Os group more than the previous group to develop pitching. Even if he doesn’t stick as a starter, you could have a kid that size throwing 100+ as a reliever. Pretty scary especially when the ball starts 6” closer to the plate than your typical pitcher.    Reggie Crawford- 6’3” 235 LHP/1B Connecticut. Sat 97 touched 100 but only pitched 7.2 innings striking out 17. Out for 2022 w/ TJ. Throws strikes and flashes a decent mid 80s slider.  At 1B he hit for average and power. Very athletic.  I would be looking at both of these kids in the second comp pick or round 2. 
    • I think the top 10 is very exciting and then you have players like   Kjerstad, Basallo, Maikol Hernandez, Anderson Delosantos, Brailyn Tavera, whoever the #1 pick is who could/should be exciting top 10 potential type of players as well.    Then there are always you Joseph Ortiz, Hudson Haskins,  John Rhodes types who are top 20 guys who could make another jump.
